American retail giant Walmart has placed over 200 Coinstar ATMs in dozens of its U.S. stores.

Shoppers can now purchase cryptocurrency and exchange it for fiat money or gift cards on the Coinstar machine network. The ability to buy bitcoins is provided by the crypto ATM operator Coinme. Walmart Communications Director Molly Blakeman said:

“Coinstar has partnered with Coinme to launch a pilot project that allows its customers to use cash to buy bitcoins. There are already 200 Coinstar kiosks located in Walmart stores across the United States that are part of this pilot project. ”

According to the information on the Coinstar website, a commission of 4% is charged for each purchase, and the commission for exchanging BTC for cash is 7%. In addition, you can find a cryptomat suitable for its location on the map.

Last May, Coinstar considered increasing the number of ATMs in the United States after their popularity surged amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In September of this year, cryptocurrency ATM developer Lamassu introduced a new Tejo model with support for six cryptocurrencies.
